Just picked up a Pyle Hydrid Pre-Amplifier and need to know how to hook my Audiobahn sub up to it?

They say the amplifier is capable of 3000W peak power on satellites (L+R), which it's just marketing, because the peak power have no practical use; they also give a rating of 300W/8Ohm, so roughly 150W per channel, but they are not saying which kind of power they measured (continuous or maximal); I guess you can count on max. 75W-100W per channel:

If your sub has an 1000W rating, you can use a 300 Watt amplifier, but you must be sure of the subwoofer' impedance; try to open the enclosure and find out the exact model of the speaker (Audiobahn have 10", 12" and 15" speakers with the same 1000W rating).

Yes, those are the subwoofer outputs, but you can drive only an active subwoofer, meaning your sub should have a built-in amplifier and therefore it should have a power cord. Most likely you must buy an additional power amplifier for your sub (post a picture with the sub' input panel or label, to properly make an amp recommendation).

Okay, makes sense. Now the receiver is 3000w, what is that good for ? my thoughts were that the 3000w would be more then enough power to really push my sub.

Yeah no doubt, So what good is the "3000" watts for? Just my speakers?
